Ryan Lakebrink - Restoration Specialist

A third-generation concrete man, Ryan’s roots within this industry run deep.  In 2006, Ryan took over as president of Lakebrink’s Custom Concrete, a family company, and managed a wide variety of residential and commercial projects throughout the Midwest. With a focused interest, experience, and an instant passion for decorative and polished concrete, Ryan quickly emerged as a major leader on decorative concrete technology.

In 2017, Ryan moved to Colorado from Missouri to co-found the decorative concrete company, The Art of Concrete where he specialized in exterior decorative formwork for high-end clients in the commercial/municipal market. Ryan built this company from the ground up reaching $4 million in sales in 3 years.

With a recent move back to the Midwest, Ryan brings over 20 years of experience in decorative and polished concrete to B&B Concrete. His craftsmanship and in-depth knowledge in restoration, polishing, and repair solutions coupled with his high level of commitment to his customers make him a stand-out partner.

Ryan has served on the board of directors for the ASCC’s Decorative Concrete Council and Concrete Polishing Council, and on the ACI Committee 310-J on Polished Concrete.
